3rd of April in 2018:

Finally, the holiday is over. I was bored because, when I arrived nearly every shop was closed. But to my surprise some shops were open. It is different than Germany. I like it. I can buy stuff even when there is a banking holiday

Intern europe office

First we watched a video about Belfast with a few impressions about activities we can do here and basic informations about belfast like the 4 districts. After that we got some information about our stay at belfast. For example where we are going to work, when we will start working, the dress code, rules that we have to consider at our accommodation, who we have to contact if something is broken at the accommodation or what we’ve got to do if we get ill. „Intern Europe meeting, it’s getting serious and fitness“ weiterlesen

Today the rain woke me up.

rain in the morning

The first sleep in a strange bed is unfamiliar. I usually slept but not enough, because I used to get up at 5 a.m. at home. Therefore I can´t sleep until 9 or 10 a.m. except when I am exhausted.
The room has two beds, two commodes, a desk and a wardrobe. One aspect, which bothers me a little bit is the space in the room. If I want to leave the room, I have to go sideward between the bed and the commodes to reach the door. All in all, I would say it has modest furniture. I know, I shouldn´t complain because it could have been worse. My mother often says: That is enough for a student to live.

Day 2 02.04.2018 Monday


Welcome back to my journey,

At the beginning of the day me and Giang did some sports to wake up.

Today it was raining the whole day but we went to tesco supermarket to get all other important household items. The supermarket got a larger range of shopping goods and it’s like 15-20% cheaper than tesco express. In the supermarket you will find a lot of discount offers for example “any 3 goods for 2 pounds”. Tesco stores are as big as the “Real” or “Kaufland” stores in Germany. After we got everything for our home we went with a companion to discover all of our work placements.
